Labor Day Weekend

Soon I will be ...

at ...

(Twin Harbors Beach State Park)

which is on the coast of ...

and about ...

far in comparison to where we live. (Seattle, not Yakima ha)

I will be joined by ...

(three pictures is maybe a little overkill but he's just so cute)

and ...

(same comment also applies to my pup and yes we have taught him to wink on command)

I am definitely looking forward to spending some quality time with my boys and not anyone else that I know (no offense friends and family). Pete and I need it and Chief Sealth is just too cute to leave at home (plus my parents will be busy hanging out with Bob Dylan at Bumbershoot so they can't watch him ... slightly jealous of them by the way). I haven't been out to the Washington coast in years and I don't think I have ever been to Westport, so it should be fun! Let's just hope for clear weather or we may be sleeping in the truck!!

My 25th birthday was a few weeks ago but since my hubby was out of town we had a party last weekend. My brother, sister-in-law, and their friend were in town from California so the timing worked out perfectly! I am definitely not Mexican and turned 15 ten years ago but we thought it would be fun to have a quinceanera. Probably the only traditional part about the party was that I wore white. There was not a dance with my father, no changing from flats to heels half way through the party, and although Pete was a wonderful host and made a very sweet toast to me, I wouldn't technically have called him my escort for the evening.
It was so fun to hang out in my parents backyard enjoying good food, cold drinks, and being surrounded by amazing friends who dressed for the occasion of course, we really do love a great themed party.

Almost as many babies as adults at the party. Weird how our lives are changing like that. I feel so old...

Pinata numero uno, red pepper

Probably my favorite picture from the party. I think a few punches were thrown over the red starbursts.

Pinata numero dos, cactus

Not pictured: Pinata numero tres, bull. But rest assured, it was very eventful ... lots of candy.

A couple things that people may or may not have figured out about me... 1. I am a difficult person to figure out. Apparently there are things about me whether it be interests, past hobbies, or style decisions, that people would never guess I would like, have done, or would do. I find it quite entertaining when this happens. 2. The choices of things that I currently like, am participating in, and looking like, will probably change soon and a new set of things will baffle people.
Most of the time this happens with people who have just met me or only briefly known me. I am pretty sure that anyone who has been around me for a few months has learned about the ever changing Audrey. If you don't know, you are about to find out. The following are pictures of me over the past year. It is pretty safe to say that I get bored with my hair easily and I'm not afraid to play around with it. Side note, I'm not saying that the choices I make are shocking or outrageous, that is just the response I have gotten from people.

About a year ago last August

September, dreads about a month old. (Pete and I were subjects for a photography class)




January a couple days later

March at SXSW. Yes we are wearing matching American Apparel hoodies and red leather jackets. No we did not plan it.

June at Sarah's wedding in California

Last Thursday

and for a little change ...

No thats not Peter Pan, its me!
Currently over a foot shorter and much darker. My blonde ponytail will soon be off to the UK for kids with alopecia and cancer.

Pictures from my 15th birthday soon! Goodnight!

A new approach on blogging

Well I suppose it is pretty obvious that I am not much of a blogger... The funny thing is that I want to be and there really isn't anything getting in my way of that except for pure lack of motivation. Or maybe its that I am really busy and the little time I spend at home goes to my husband, house, and pup. Or maybe its that I feel the need to write really long posts so I can fit in every detail of what I am sharing, and sometimes sitting down to write that much seems like it will take more effort then its worth. Which goes back to my comment on lack of motivation.

I have decided in order for my posting to be more often then once every three months, I will need to keep things short and sweet, just the facts. With that said, I will be posting some before and after pictures hopefully next weekend. You probably are thinking that these will be the long awaited before and after pictures of our house, but you are sadly mistaken. These pictures will be of me! Well, it is depending on how the "after" turns out. If its not as I am hoping (I find out on Friday), Ill probably just post some pictures from my birthday party. Let's hope everything looks as planned ...

I'll leave you all with this picture of me and my hubby when we visited California in June for my best friends wedding. Aren't we adorable?!
